Mill and House Carpentry is a three-year program that is divided into two major parts. The first and second year students receive basic instruction in the process of milling lumber into various components including cabinets and countertops. The third and fourth year students spend the majority of their time learning how to construct a house from foundation to finished product. The annual house-building project provides the setting for the “on the job” learning activities.
The Carpentry Program has the major role in the house-building program, as we are responsible for completing the structure of the building in a timely fashion. This enables the other trades of Plumbing and Electrical to perform their work. The carpenters also install all windows and doors, shingle the roof, and install finished products to both the exterior and interior of the house. Students graduating from the Carpentry Program are prepared for entry-level work in the field and to continue their training at the postsecondary level.
